Visitors to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida have many choices regarding where they want to stay. If guests consider an off-property hotel, Disney Springs hotels are some of the best options. B Resort and Spa is a Disney Springs hotel often recommended for its price and amenities.
B Resort and Spa-A Disney Springs Hotel
First, let’s discuss the pros of the B Resort and Spa. While not as close to Disney Springs as other hotels, like the Wyndham Lake Buena Vista, it is still a short walk compared to other resorts on Hotel Plaza Boulevard. Disney Springs is the shopping and dining district formerly known as Downtown Disney, and it is a popular spot for locals and vacationers alike.
Another plus for B Resort and Spa is its transportation to the theme parks. Complimentary buses are available for guests who do not wish to or cannot drive and park at the theme parks during their stay.
Additionally, many of the rooms have been refurbished and updated to reflect a sleek, modern style and include things like a Keurig coffee maker, AVEDA bath amenities, and a mini beverage cooler.
Price and Space are Important at B Resort and Spa
Disney World hotels are notoriously high-priced. Even the value resorts on the property can be cost-prohibitive. Disney Springs hotels, such as B Resort and Spa, know this and are able to offer some of their rooms for less than $100 per night. However, just because the price is lower does not mean the quality is lower.
The refurbished rooms feel slightly larger than Disney’s value resort rooms, especially if you were to book a room with two queen beds and a sleeper sofa. There is plenty of space for people and luggage in the most basic of rooms.
On-Site Amenities and Dining
B Resort and Spa has a fantastic on-site restaurant. American Kitchen Bar & Grill offers made-to-order breakfast as well as lunch and dinner choices. If guests use the zero-entry pool, the Pool Bar and Grill is conveniently available for quick bites and drinks.
In addition to the great food choices, you can expect other amenities such as a fitness center, laundry facilities, on-site parking (for an additional fee), a kid zone with arcade games (games are an extra fee), and a complimentary theme park shuttle.
Complimentary Theme Park Shuttle
A perk of staying at a Disney hotel is the included transportation to the parks. B Resort and Spa also includes theme park transportation for free. However, there are some things you need to know about the complimentary shuttle.
- Reservations and a boarding pass to ride the shuttle are required.
- The front desk will provide a discount code for the free shuttle.
- Shuttles depart 90 minutes before park opening and have returns up to 90 minutes after park closing.
- Departures to and from the theme parks are hourly.
- Shuttle transportation is not provided for special events such as After Hours and holiday parties.
Disney Perks without the Disney Price
For families looking for an affordable hotel without sacrificing quality, B Resort and Spa is a great choice. With the spacious rooms, included amenities, and affordable pricing, it will be difficult to find better accommodation. Its only drawback would be its non-Disney theming, but if that is not a deal-breaker for you, B Resort and Spa should be on your list for your next Disney vacation.
